Hi friends! Thursday means one step closer to the weekend! Not that we have any plans! Ha! Have you been doing anything fun on the weekends? Houston feels like it’s s l o w l y getting back to normal, but we’re still home most of the time. I would love to take the kids on a summer trip, even just a weekend getaway, but we haven’t booked anything. Do y’all have any summer travel plans?
Father’s Day is approaching in less than two weeks, June 21st to be exact. Not that the women need reminding! 😉 We remember everything! Even though I’m divorced, I still make sure my young kids have a gift to give their Dad on this special day. I think that’s still important- birthdays and Christmas gifts too!
I put together two gift guides – the first one has things under $25 and the second one is all on Amazon! Hopefully this makes shopping for the men in your life a little easier. 🙂
Polo Shirt • Wow, what a steal this polo is at under $25 (regularly $45) and it comes in several colors. Bonus, it’s made from a cooling, four-way-stretch fabric. That would definitely come in handy during our hot, Houston summers!
Yeti • You literally cannot go wrong with a Yeti cup- I don’t know anyone who wouldn’t want one. It’s double insulated to keep his drink hot or cold for hours. This one has over 12,500 positive reviews.
Adidas Tee • For the athletic guy, or the man who wants to keep cool on the weekend, this Adidas tee is made of sweat wicking stretch fabric for a cool, comfortable fit.
Face Masks • Never in my 11 years of blogging did I think I’d be recommending face masks as a gift, but here we are! He stay safe and look good in these masks that come in a set of three for just $7.50.
Jack Black • The Colleen Rothschild of men’s cleansing and shave needs. The set includes the Deep Dive™ Glycolic Facial Cleanser, a Moisturizer with SPF 20, and a Shave Cream with a luxurious, creamy lather for the closest shave.
Bluetooth Speaker • This mini speaker is so cool and you won’t believe the amazing sound it produces when it’s barely the size of a coffee pod! It has a 2-hour battery life and is water resistant- great for taking to the pool, beach or on the boat!
Coffee Mug • How great is this?! 😉
Havaiana’s • Ok, this one is over $25 by $1, but we’ll let that side. These flip flops are a classic ‘must have’ in any man’s wardrobe.
Boxers • Yep, if your man needs new ones, this 3-pack is 50% off and made of 100% cotton.
White Tee • Is it me or is there something so cute about a man in a white v-neck tee. These come in a pack of 4 and are made with Supima cotton, the softest to the touch!
And now moving on the Amazon!
Tile • Air Pods • I Love You Because • Herschel Bag • Car Vac • Yeti Tote • Joke Book • Charging Station • Massager • Slippers • Door Mat • Multi Tool • Portable Charger • Hot Sauce • Travel Tote • Grill Kit
Tile • No more searching for your keys or phone, this handy device. This review explains how it works : All you have to do is attach it to your keys and you’re all set! When you misplace your keys, you go into the app on your phone (which is super user friendly) and tap, “find my keys:. It then rings your tile that is attached to your keys, and if they are not in an area where they can ring, it shows you the location of the tile, which is also very helpful! If you misplace your phone, you can double tap the middle button on the tile and it will ring your phone! #genius and under $20
Air Pods • If you have air pods, you know why they’re so awesome and if you don’t, I swear you’re missing out! I use mine all the time for exercising, but they’re also awesome for listening to podcasts or audiobooks while doing chores. I even put them in when I’m talking on my phone so I can be hands free without using speakerphone. You’ll really get bonus points if you give these to your man.
I Love You Because • If your guy is the sentimental type or “words of affirmation” he’ll appreciate this book that your littles can fill out for him. It’s sure to be a treasure for years.
Herschel Bag • Over 1,000 positive reviews on this little bag. It’s minimal, but does the trick. Holds all his toiletries and can even fit a wallet or phone in the front zipper pocket.
Car Vac • This handy car vac seems like the man equivalent to the Dyson Stick Vac. In fact, as I was reading the over 11,000 good reviews on this guy, it made me think I might need one for myself. #selfish But, I still have kids that eat in the car and somehow the food never seems to make it into their mouths. This hand vacuum lets you get in all those nooks and crannies so your car can be squeaky clean without a trip to the car wash.
Yeti Tote • This is a no brainer. Yeti is a quality brand that is worth every penny and stands the test of time. This tote is waterproof, puncture-proof, and handy for every trip to the boat, lake, pool, beach, camp or on the road. If it gets dirty or sandy, you can easily hose it off to clean it. And, it doubles as a cooler!
Joke Book • For the guy who loves to make other people (or just himself) laugh.
Charging Station • If all those cords drive him crazy, this minimal charging station could be the answer. It looks sleek and charges an iPhone, iWatch and AirPods all at the same time, while also functioning as a hands free device holder. It has a rubber stand that won’t slip and also folds flat for travel
Massager • If your hands are tired of rubbing his sore muscles, let this baby do the work! It has different sized nodes and 3D rotation kneading massage rollers in ergonomic U-design, which provides deep tissue massage. I’m not sure who would want to use it in the car, but there’s an adapter for that too.
Slippers • The world is made of two types of men. Those that wear slippers/robes and those that do not. If you man is in the don’t category, skip this one. If your guy does like slippers, these have a durable rubber sole and super soft insole with high-density memory foam. They fit TTS and are machine washable, lay flat to dry.
Door Mat • Our baseball dad’s will love this home plate door mat. Let him put it in the garage! 🙂
Multi Tool • Since I’m not that handy, I love a guy that has tools and knows how to use them! This is one simple and compact piece that has 16+ functions and can fit on a key ring. He will feel like MacGyver with this gadget!
Portable Charger • With our dependance on cell phones, a portable charger is a Must Have! This one is sleek and portable and charges cell phones, tablets and other USB devices. Only $24!
Hot Sauce • This one is specifically for the hot sauce lover and chosen by the Queen of TV, Ms. Oprah herself as one of her Favorite Things! It comes with 7 different flavors – Garlic Herb, Smokey Burbon, Garlic Pepper, Chipotle Pepper, Cayenne Pepper, Whiskey Habanero, and Ghost Pepper. The spice level ranges from mild to blazing hot.
Travel Tote • At under $50, this duffle style tote is a steal. It’s durable with a light and soft canvas, top quality genuine crazy horse leather trim stitching and bottom rivits. You can carry it by the handles or over the shoulder with the shoulder strap and it fits a ton of stuff!
Grill Kit • It’s definitely time to fire of those outdoor barbecues! This 12-piece kit has everything he’ll need for grilling or camping and the stainless steel pieces are dishwasher safe.
I hope this gave you some good Father’s Day gift ideas! I could shop for my Mom or girlfriends with my eyes closed, but men are a bit tougher. Do you think so too?
Have a fantastic day!
